Penalties for Drug Distribution
Like other drug crimes, the seriousness of a drug distribution charge depends on a number of different factors. While drug distribution is always considered a felony, there is a dramatic latitude for sentencing in these cases based on the perceived seriousness of the offense.
The seriousness of a drug distribution charge depends on:
- The amount of the controlled substance found
- The type of the controlled substance found
- The criminal history of the accused
- Any aggravating factors
Often times, these cases are subject to Fourth Amendment violations, in which law enforcement oversteps their allowances when it comes to search and seizure. To have your case examined for this type of error, and others that could invalidate the charges against you, call us at Tinny, Meyer & Piccarreto, P.A. today.
